Under 17 Club

The new season has now started and monthly events for the Under 17 Club have now been organized, starting 10am on Sunday 23rd March. This year we have produced an exciting new programme, our best to date, featuring the following:

Angling Cast Awards: Free to enter, this nationally recognised fishing qualification has 6 levels – level 3 is equivalent to the Scouts’ Angling Badge and for those of you who wish to pursue a career in angling level 6 is the standard you need for the UKCC Level 1 Certificate in Coaching Angling course.

Casting Tuition: Did you know that the Under 17 Club is recognized as one of the top places in the region to learn to cast a fly rod? Free sessions, from 10am to 12.30pm, with casting from AAPGAI and GAIA instructors.

Water Craft: Do you know the best fly to use? Monthly lessons on reading the lakes. Get the best from your fishing session, match the hatch and fly life cycle.

Trout Masters: Largest fish will be entered into the Trout Masters Fishing Competition.

Competitions: The club has been very successful over the years with members taking part in the Talent Pathway and representing England in the junior fly fishing team. If this is one of your goals then specialist help is now available.

New Coaches: This year we have new coaches joining us from across the region.

River Fishing: Fancy fishing the River Wear for trout, sea trout or salmon – watch this space!
